JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



December 12. 1923. 



the meeting held on November 28, 1923, and appear- 
ing on page 1280 of the Journal of Proceedings of 
the City Council of said date, directing the Commis- 
sioner of Buildings to allow J. Sedlicka to maintain, 
as at present erected, and occupy flats located in 
basement of building located at 1716 South Jefferson 
street. 

I withhold my approval of said order for the rea- 
son that the Commissioner of Health informs me 
that to permit of the occupation of the building as 
it is now constructed would result in a violation of 
Section 651, Article IX, Chapter XVII on Buildings of 
The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922, which in effect 
prohibits more than one flat in the basement of any 
tenement house, to be constructed, whereas in viola- 
tion of this section and in disregard of the approved 
plans of the Department of Buildings providing for 
only one flat, two have been constructed. 

I attach hereto the communication from the Com- 
missioner of Health and desire to make it a part of 
my veto message. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 

The following communication was submitted with 
said veto message: 

Department of Health,) 
Chicago, December 1. 1923. ( 

Hon. Wm. E. Dever, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — I find it necessary to invite your atten- 
tion to the Council order awaiting your signa- 
ture on premises 1716 South Jefferson street, a case 
which I think involves such serious violations that 
it should form the subject of a veto message. 

The premises 1716 South Jefferson street consist 
of a one-story frame cottage which has been raised 
and a ne.w foundation, including basement rooms, in- 
stalled thereunder. The work was in progress when 
noted by Inspector Rogers on July 3rd last. His 
report showed that arrangements were being made 
for two flats by the installation of two water closets 
and two sinks. 

On July 25th a plan was approved by this depart- 
ment showing six rooms and bath room. This plan 
shows a stairway from the ground level, about 5 
feet below the street, to the upper story of the build- 
ing as raised, and two windows at the rear. These 
two windows and the stairway were impossible of 
construction by reason of the presence of a frame 
addition at the rear extending for 13 feet across the 
rear of the building. The ceiling height shown, 
8 feet 6 inches, has been properly put in, but the 
floor level is 4 feet 8 inches below the street level. 
The department is raising no question on the windows 
which open on a proper space but because of the 
fact that the yard is about 5 feet below the street. 
A tight partition was constructed dividing the two 
rooms at the rear from the rooms at the front and 
the basement is now occupied by two families in vio- 
lation of Section 651. At the rear corner of the build- 
ing a water closet was installed not shown on the 
plan and having a window not shown on the plan. 
Next to this at the rear wall is a pantry not having 
< the window required by law. There are two bed- 
rooms below size, one of which is 67 square feet 
and the other 74 square feet instead of 80 square 
feet as required by law. None of the plumbing work 
has been reported for inspection or test. 

The Building Department issued a stop order on 
the building on August 6th, but upon receiving as- 



surances that a flat had existed in the building before 
the reconstruction, allowed the work to proceed. On 
October 15th when two flats were discovered they 
recommended that the owner be sued. 

On the presentation of a request for a Council 
order this department made a report on November 
15th recommending that the council order be not 
approved, a copy of which report is herewith trans- 
mitted. 

It is not impracticable to take out the extra plumb- 
ing and reconstruct the flat without great expense 
for a single family, in which case the violations 
would not be of a very serious character. 

Very respectfully, 

(Signed 1 Herman N. Bundesen, 

Commissioner of Health. 

Alderman Fick moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed order was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Fick moved to refer said order to the Com- 
mittee on Buildings and Zoning. 
The motion prevailed. 



Appointment of Oscar W. Eckland as a Member of the 
Board of Local Improvements.

fully ask the concurrence of your Honorable Body in

Alderman Guernsey moved to suspend the rules tem- 
porarily to permit immediate action on the foregoing 
appointment. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Guernsey moved to concur in said appoint- 
ment. 

The motion prevailed.

ments, in the penal sum of twenty-five thousand dol-

Construction of a Deep-water Harbor in Lake Calumet. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication, 
which was, together with the communication trans- 
mitted therewith, ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Harbors. Wharves and Bridges: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, December 10, 1923.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I respectfully beg leave to direct your 
attention to the Lake Calumet Harbor project. 

There can be no doubt about the desirability of 
the early completion of this great improvement. 
Special legislation has vested the City of Chicago 
with adequate power to acquire the property which 



is necessary before the work of actual construction 
•can be proceeded with. I am informed that the 
Finance Committee will be called upon to consider 
the advisability of appropriating in the forthcoming 
budget a large sum of money for the doing of this 
work. I am also informed that unofficial sugges- 
tions have been made that this work of construction 
should be turned oved by the City of Chicago to 
the Sanitary District of Chicago. 

I am not at this time sufficiently familiar with 
the arguments advanced for this change to want to 
take a definite position either for or against it, but 
I believe that this is a matter to which your Honor- 
able Body, through its proper committee, should give 
immediate attention and thorough study. 

I am also informed by the Commissioner of Public 
Works that certain railroads owning property in the 
vicinity of this contemplated improvement, which 
will be affected by it, have signified a willingness im- 
mediately to enter into negotiations with the City 
for undertaking and paying for all or a part of the 
costs of the building of the harbor in exchange for 
track and terminal privileges. It seems to me that 
this is a subject matter which should receive your 
immediate consideration. 

In this connection, a communication received by 
me from the Nickel Plate Road, but addressed to the 
Mayor and City Council of Chicago, is hereto at- 
tached and referred to your Honorable Body. 

I am not familiar with the details of these various 
proposals. However, if it is possible to negotiate a 
contract with one or more of the railroad companies 
in this vicinity which will adequately protect the 
interests of the City, and at the same time furnish 
a consideration to the companies for assuming the 
heavy costs of this improvement, your Honorable 
Body might well consider the advisability of such 
a proceeding. 

This improvement means much to the southeast- 
ern section of our City, and I would respectfully urge 
that the matter be given your prompt consideration. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Manor. 



The following communication was submitted with 
the foregoing communication:

and other lands and rights acquired, taken, owned 
and used or to be acquired, taken, owned and used 
by the City, and the submerged lands and rights ac- 
quired, taken, owned and used or to be acquired, 
taken owned and used by or for the Company, said 
boundary line to be located and described as fol- 
lows : 

Commencing at the point where the northwest- 
erly shore line of Lake Calumet touches the south 
line of Section eleven (11) and running thence 
east, on the south line of Section eleven (11) to 
the southeast corner of said Section; thence, south- 
easterly along the center line of Stony Island ave- 
nue, proposed, as shown on the Arend Van Vlis- 
singer Plan of Lake Calumet Harbor, adopted by 
ordinance July 22, 1921, to a point where the east 
line of the Anchorage Basin (which line is also 
the east line of Slip No. 1) extended intersects said 
center line of Stony Island avenue, proposed: 
thence south along the east line extended and the 
east line of the Anchorage Basin and Slip No. 1 to 
the north line of Slip No. 2; thence east along the 
north line of Slip No. 2 to the northeast corner 
thereof; thence south along the east line of Slip 
No. 2 to the center thereof, which is a «point of 
intersection of the north line produced of the south 
one-half (S. V 2 ) of the southeast quarter (S. E. %) 
of the southwest quarter (S. W. %) of Fractional 
Section thirteen (13), south of the Indian Boundary 
Line; thence east along said north line, produced, 
of the south one-half (S. %) of the southeast 
quarter (S. E. %) of the southwest quarter 
(S. W. %) of Fractional Section thirteen (13),

tion with the west line produced of the east eighty 
(80) acres of the northwest one-quarter (N. W. %) 
of Fractional Section thirteen (13), south of the 
Indian Boundary Line; thence north along said 
west line produced of the east eighty (80) acres of 
the northwest one-quarter (N. W. % ) of Frac-

shown on the attached^rint in red hatching. 

2. That the City, pursuant to said ordinance of 
July 22, 1921, convey to the Company a railroad right 
of way, generally one hundred feet wide, the outer 
line of such right of way being a line described as 
follows : 

Commencing at a point near the intersection of 
the westerly line of Stony Island avenue, pro- 
posed, (shown on Arend Van Vlissingen Plan here- 
inbefore referred to) with the easterly line ex- 
tended of the Anchorage Basin (which is also the 
easterly line of Slip No. 1), from which point a 
curve having a radius of thirteen hundred (1,300) 
feet convex to the north,' is tangent both to said 
westerly line of Stony Island avenue, proposed, 
and to the easterly line of Doty avenue, proposed; 
thence westerly from said point of beginning, 
along said curve to the easterly line of Doty ave- 
nue; thence southerly, easterly, and northerly 
along the easterly, northerly and westerly lines re- 
spectively of Doty avenue, proposed, East 129th 
street, proposed, and Stony Island avenue, pro- 
posed, to the intersection of the north line produced 
of the south one-half (S. %) of the southeast 
quarter (S. E. %) of the southwest quarter 
(S. W. %) of Fractional Section thirteen (13), 



• south of Indian Boundary Line; the angle in Stony 
Island avenue (proposed) at East 116th street to 
be modified by suitable curve to permit use of 
right of way for track construction without en- 
croaching upon Stony Island avenue. Also a strip 
of land one hundred (100) feet in width immediate- 
ly east of, contiguous to and adjoining the easterly 
line of the right of way above described, and 
parallel thereto, running southerly from the in- 
tersection of the north line produced of Section 
twenty-seven (27), Township thirty-seven (37), 
Range fourteen (14) and intersecting the north 
right of way line at a point about four hundred 
(400) feet west of the east line of Section twenty- 
six (26 \ all as shown in red on attached plan. 
3. That upon confirmation of the said boundary 
line agreement, as required by law. the company will 
dedicate and convey to the City for street purposes 
(Stony Island avenue proposed), the following de- 
scribed property : 

A strip of land fifty (50) feet wide, lying north- 
easterly of and contiguous to said permanent 
boundary line, and extending along said boundary 
line from the south line of Section twelve (12). 
north of Indian Boundary Line to a point where 
the east line extended of the Anchorage Basin and 
Slip No. 1 intersects said boundary line. 

Also, a strip of land one hundred (100) feet wide, 
the center line of which is the center line of Ston\ 
Island avenue (proposed), and extending from the 
easterly line extended of the Anchorage Basin to the 
north line produced of the south half (S. %) of the 
southeast quarter (S. E. % > of the southwest quar- 
ter (S. \V. %) of Fractional Section Thirteen (13 1 
south of the Indian Boundary Line. 

Also, a strip of land one hundred (100) feet wide 
extending from the east line of Lake Calumet An- 
chorage Basin to the west line of the one hundred 
(100) foot right of way described under Section two 
(2) of this proposal; together with the right to 
cross said right of way for street purposes over a 
prolongation of the above described one hundred 
(100) foot strip. 

Provided, however, that prior thereto or simul- 
taneously therewith the City shall set apart and re- 
serve for street purposes (Stony Island avenue, pro- 
posed), the strip of land, fifty (50) feet wide, along 
and adjoining the southwesterly side, of said perma- 
nent boundary line, between the south line of Section 
twelve (12) and the point of intersection where the 
east line extended of the Anchorage Basin and Slip 
No. 1 intersects said boundary line. 

4. That the Company will develop certain property 
now owned by it or to be acquired by it, south of East 
95th street, and extending south and southeasterly 
along its present right of way, for yards, transporta- 
tion and terminal facilities in connection with the 
development of the Harbor, by constructing a yard 
extending westerly about eight hundred (80'0) feet 
more or less from the present southwesterly right of 
way line; and said Company will dedicate a new street 
across its property to be known as East 103rd street, 
said street to be one hundred (100) feet wide, pro- 
vided, however, that said street shall be at grade, and 
that in the event it is deemed desirable to separate 
the grade of the street and railroad, said street shall 
be carried across the railroad by an elevated bridge 
or structure to be approximately twelve hundred 
(1200) feet long, including the western ramp and ap- 
proach as may be required to carry the same to the 
easterly right of way line of said Company, the cost 
of which shall be borne by the City and Company 
equally.

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1331 



The Company will fill East 103rd street from the 
westerly line of Section twelve (i2) to the southwest- 
erly right of way line of the Company to the same 
grade as that of adjoining property, such fill to be 
made from spoil dredged from the Anchorage Basin 
or slips in Lake Calumet Harbor, the Company to 
receive from the City compensation at the rate of one 
acre of submerged lands for each five thousand (5000) 
cubic yards of fill, no compensation to be made for 
yardage in slopes outside of street lines. 

The Company will give necessary frontage consents 
for construction of an electric street railroad, for 
passengers only, in East 103rd street, provided, how- 
ever, that such street railroad shall not be constructed 
until after said street shall have been elevated across 
the tracks of the Company. Any additional cost for 
elimination of grade crossings arising out of the 
existence of. or provision for electric street railroad, 
to be borne by the Electric Street Railroad Company. 

5. That the Company will dredge a channel de- 
scribed as follows : 

A channel two hundred (200) feet wide extend- 
ing from the U. S. Channel Line (about one thou- 
sand (1000) feet southeasterly from the southeast- 
erly line of Stony Island avenue, proposed' 
to said southeasterly line of Stony Island 
avenue. The southeasterly line of said chan- 
nel to be fifty (50) feet northerly from and 
parallel to the • southerly line of said Entrance 
Basin; a channel one hundred (lOO'i feet wide be- 
tween the southeasterly line of Stony Island avenue 
and the northwesterly line of the right of way of 
the Lake Calumet Harbor Railroad; a channel two 
hundred (200) feet wide, the northerly line thereof 
being one hundred fifty (150) feet south of the 
northerly and northeasterly lines of the Entrance 
Basin, and extending to a point in the Anchorage 
Basin, so located that the east line of the channel 
is four hundred (400) feet west of the east line 
of the Anchorage Basin; a channel two hundred 
(200^ feet wide in the Anchorage Basin, the east 
line of which is a line four hundred (400) feet west 
of the easterly line of the Anchorage Basin, and ex- 
tending north to a point fifty (500 feet south of 
the north line of the Anchorage Basin; also two 
turning basins immediately west of said channel 
and contiguous thereto, eight hundred (800) feet 
long, north and south measurements, and six hun- 
dred (600) feet wide, east and west measurements. 
One of said basins to be constructed at the north 
end of the Anchorage Basin, the north line of which 
shall be fifty. (50) feet south of the north line of 
the Anchorage Basin, and the second turning basin 
to be of the same measurements and constructed 
opposite Slip No. 9, all as shown on the Arend Van 
Vlissingen Plan of Lake Calumet Harbor, adopted 
by ordinance July 22, 1921, as shown on attached 
print in green. 

All dredgings are to be made to a depth of at least 
minus twenty-two (22) feet, Chicago datum. 

The Company will waste all spoil from such dredg- 
ing operations on property owned by the City, at 
any point within three thousand (3000) feet of the 
dredge, to the extent of 216,750 cubic yards of spoil, 
and will fill the lands lying east of the east line of the 
Anchorage Basin and Slip No. 1 extended to a point 
of intersection with the center line of Stony Island 
avenue, and north of the north line of Slip No. 2 and 
the north line produced of the south one-half (S. %) 
of the southeast quarter of the southwest quarter 
(S. W. %) of Fractional Section Thirteen (13) and 
west of the west line of Stony Island avenue to a 
height of at least plus two (2) feet Chicago datum; 



.and will fill all lands conveyed to it by the City for 
right of way and other railroad facilities to a height 
of at least plus six (6) feet Chicago datum, but shall 
have the right, in filling said right of way on the west 
side of the lake, to dredge from any part of Slips 
numbered 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, and the right to use 
the lands adjoining' said right of way on both sides 
thereof for the purpose of maintaining such slopes 
as may be necessary to support said fill, and may 
dredge from any point in the Entrance Basin, An- 
chorage Basin, or Slips in the event that it is neces- 
sary to use additional spoil to bring the level of lands 
and streets to be filled to the specified height, and 
shall have the right to fill to a level of not more than 
plus 8 feet Chicago datum, other lands owned 
by the Company, north and east of the head of Lake 
Calumet and Stony Island avenue by dredging from 
any point in the Entrance Basin, Anchorage Basin or 
Slips. 

6. That as soon as public convenience and neces- 
sity may require, the Company will apply for the nec- 
essary governmental sanction to permit the construc- 
tion of, and. upon procuring the same, will proceed 
to construct and operate, a railroad on the right of 
way to be conveyed to it by said City, such railroad 
to be operated as a Belt Line Railroad in both inter- 
state and intrastate commerce, and the Company, so 
far as permitted by governmental authority, will 
charge on shipments to and from points on said Har- 
bor Railroad the same rates as apply in the Chicago 
Switching District for the same service under sub- 
stantially the same circumstances and conditions. 

The Harbor Railroad will agree to make direct 
physical connection for interchange of traffic with 
any railroad company that will extend its rails to a 
point on the Harbor Railroad right of way where 
such a connection may be practically made. The Har- 
bor Railroad, so far as it legally can. will make rates 
that will apply equally via all railroads. The Harbor 
Railroad will be operated as an integral part of the 
Company's trunk lines so that traffic to and from 
points on said Harbor Railroad may be interchanged 
with all carriers reached by the Company's rails. 

7. That the substance of this proposal be em- 
bodied in a formal contract setting forth the agree- 
ment of the parties substantially as herein outlined 
and including such details as may be agreed upon as 
essential to give effect to the mutual undertakings 
of the City and the Company. 

The foregoing proposal is made on the basis of esti- 
mated dredging costs of 20c per cubic yard, or a 
total expenditure of approximately six hundred thou- 
sand (600,000) dollars for the 3,187,100 cubic yards 
to be excavated. Any reduction in cost will propor- 
tionately reduce the acreage accruing to the Com- 
pany, and any increase in cost, approved by the city 
engineer as proper to be paid for by the City, will 
result in additional acreage to be conveyed to the 
Company. 

The New York, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad 
Company.

City Hall, 
Chicago. 

Dear Mr. Mayor — At the direction of the Board 
of Directors of the All-Chicago Council there is en- 
closed copy of a resolution concerning the matter 
of track elevation in this City. This resolution 
was prepared after a consultation with Mr. Francis 
X. Busch and the engineer of the Track Elevation 
Committee. 

This organization would appreciate it very much 
if this subject is brought to the attention of the 
City Council. 

Very sincerely yours, 

All- Chicago Council. 
Robert H. Nau, Executive Secretary." 

The resolution accompanying the communication is 
as follows: 

"resolution 

Adopted by the All-Chicago Council Concerning 

Railroad Track Elevation in the City of Chicago. 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, in order to promote public safety and permit 
the orderly development of the City as a whole did 
on April 5, 1911, April 22, 1912, and December 29, 
1913, pass ordinances providing for the elevation 
of certain railroads operating in the city limits, and 

Whereas, The railroads concerned have wholly 
ignored such ordinances and have seen fit to evade 
compliance therewith for a period of nearly twelve 
years, therefore be it 

Resolved, By the Board of Directors of the All- 
Chicago Council that the attention of His Honor, 
Mayor William E. Dever, be directed to these facts 
and that he be urgently requested to use every 
means at his command to secure a compliance by 
all railroad companies concerned with the above- 
mentioned ordinances and that we pledge him our 
active support in bringing about the completion of 
all track elevation within the limits of the City of 
Chicago provided for by ordinance, and be it fur- 
ther 

Resolved, That Mayor Dever be requested to give 
special and immediate attention to the following 
grade crossings within the City of Chicago, all of 
which are a constant menace to the lives of citi- 
zens, seriously impede street traffic and retard the 
normal growth of the communities in which they 
exist: 

Lawrence avenue — C. N. & W. R. R.; date of ordi- 
nance, December 29, 1913. 

Lawrence avenue — C. M. & St. P. R. R.; date of 
ordinance, December 29, 1913. 

Elston avenue— C. M. & St. P. R. R.; date of ordi- 
nance. December 29, 1913. 

43rd street— P. C. C. & St. L. R. R.; date of ordi- 
nance, April 22, 1912. 

43rd street— B. & 0. C. T. R. R.; date of ordi- 
nance, April 22,' 1912. 

43rd street — C. J. R. R.; date of ordinance, April 
22, 1912. 



47th street— B. & 0. C. T. R. R.; date of ordi- 
nance, April 22, 1912. 

47th street — C. J. R. R.; date of ordinance, April 
22, 1912. 

94th street and Cottage Grove avenue — C. & W. 
I. and C. R. I. & P. R. Rs.; date of ordinance, April 
5, 1911. 

1 16th street and Michigan avenue— C. & W. I. and 
C. & E. I. R. Rs.; date of ordinance, April 5, 1911." 

This matter of track elevation has been receiving 
serious consideration at my hands. October 29th of 
this year I received a letter from Honorable George 
M. Maypole, Chairman of your Committee on Track 
Elevation, which stated very forcibly the existing 
conditions and suggested the necessity of giving im- 
mediate consideration to measures which would com- 
pel the elimination of the peril to the public because 
of these dangerous grade crossings. 

As stated in that letter and in the resolution of the 
All-Chicago Council, these grade crossings are a con- 
stant menace to the lives of our citizens, seriously im- 
pede street traffic and retard the normal growth of 
the communities in which they are located. The 
Coroner's statistics show that there have been 685 
fatalities at grade crossings in the last ten years. 

It is also true that the railroads have so completely 
ignored the existing ordinances that no substantial 
progress in track elevation has been made during the 
last ten or twelve years. There may have been some 
excuse for this lack of activity on the part of the 
railroads during the war period, but there is no rea- 
son now why they should not immediately proceed 
to carry out their ordinance obligations. 

Accompanying Alderman Maypole's letter above 
referred to was a list of track elevation ordinances 
which had been accepted by the companies affected, 
where either the work had not been undertaken at all 
or was in an unfinished state. I am attaching this 
memorandum as a part of this communication. 

On December 5, 1923, your Track Elevation Com- 
mittee instructed the Corporation Counsel to prepare 
an order directing the Commissioner of Public Works 
and the Corporation Counsel to take prompt and vig- 
orous action to force the railroad companies to com- 
ply with these various ordinances, and in the event 
of their failure so to do to see that all speed and 
crossing protection ordinances were strictly enforced. 
In my judgment compliance with these ordinances can 
best be accomplished by the Department of Public 
Works, with the aid of the Law Department, and for 
that reason I am heartily in favor of the order rec- 
ommended by your Track Elevation Committee and 
urge its immediate passage. 

In this connection I am offering for your consid- 
eration an amendment to Chapter LXV of the Munici- 
pal Code of 1922, creating a bureau of track eleva- 
tion in the Department of Public Works. This 
amendment, if adopted, will place the responsibility 
for the enforcement of all present and future track 
elevation ordinances upon the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works, and provide an efficient staff under close 
supervision which will insure definite progress and 
sustained effort in the work of track elevation and 
the elmination of dangerous grade crossings. 



Respectfully yours,

Proffer of Services of the Department of Public Serv- 
ice to the City Council and Its Committees. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication, 
which was, together with the communication trans- 
mitted therewith, ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, December 12, 1923.] 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am transmitting herewith to the 
Council for its information copy of a letter received 
by me from Honorable Leo J. Winiecki, Commis- 
sioner of Public Service. 

This Department, as now conducted, can be of 
great service to individual members of the Council 
and Council Committees, and this communication is 



transmitted with the suggestion that advantage be 
taken of the facilities thus afforded. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 



The following communication was submitted with 
the foregoing communication: 

December 10, 1923. 
Hon. William E. Dever, Mayor, City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — It is incumbent upon me as Commis- 
sioner of Public Service in soliciting your Honor's 
co-operation in having the department function as 
intended by the ordinance creating same. 

Briefly, I herewith submit a summary of the ordi- 
nances under which the department is operating, 
viz. : 

1st. The supervision and regulation of the 
utility companies in respect to compliance with 
their grants, including the handling of complaints. 

2nd. The* collection, compilation and super- 
vision of such public utility statistics as may 
assist the City Council and other regulatory bodies 
as a basis for rate making and regulation. 

An analysis of these duties specifically charges the 
department with the responsibility of making or 
supervising all investigations, appraisals and all 
matters pertaining to utility matters other than 
legal. 

Upon the creation of the department in the year 
1914, same functioned as originally intended," the 
City Council, Council Committees, etc., delegated the 
department work of such nature as follows : 

Motor Bus Report. 

Report on Count of Automatic Telephones. 
Valuation of the Properties of the Chicago Ele- 
vated Railways. 

Report of Chicago Subway Plans. 

This class of service was rendered to the different 
Council Committees, in addition to serving the public 
in the adjustment of their complaints. 

Upon the advent of the previous administration a 
steady decline in the activity due to the policy of 
diverting the work heretofore done by the depart- 
ment to special staff committees and outside agencies, 
thus making this department practically a complaint- 
receiving agency. 

In many instances these special bodies accepted 
the facilities afforded by this department using our 
staff of employes and information from our files in 
the compiling of reports, with little or no mention 
made of assistance we rendered. ■ ' 

It is not my desire to usurp the powers of the City 
Council but I do believe that considerable of the work 
that has been done by these special staff committees 
could be done by this department by working in con- 
junction with the Corporation Counsel's office. 

This course which I recommend as feasible would 
eliminate to a great extent the extravagant fees that 
have been paid to these agencies, and work per- 
formed bv a permanent department would be kept 
and not lost to the City's future use. Records ob- 
tained in former investigations would be of consider- 
able value to the City in problems that now lie be- 
fore it. 

At present the department is assisting the De-

partment of Public Works in the solution of the 
fixed bridge problem. 

A report on the Postal Pneumatic Tube Company's 
situation was recently submitted to Aid. Jacob M. 
Arvey, Chairman of Sub-Committee of Committee 
on Gas, Oil and Electric Light. The Alderman com- 
mended the department for the intelligent report 
rendered. 

Cases of this nature are significant of the class of 
service this department is in a position to render, 
and therefore, I respectfully solicit the graces of 
your office in recommending to the City Council and 
Council Committees to use the facilities afforded 
wherever possible. 

In conclusion, I wish to express to your Honor 
my desire to see the Department of Public Service 
serve the City of Chicago as it now efficiently serves 
the public at large. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Leo J. Winiecki, 

Commissioner of Public Service.

The -Mayor submitted the following communication: 

Office of the Mayor,} 
Chicago, December 12, 1923.) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of

being conducted by the Department of Public Works 
in accordance with an order heretofore passed by

The reasons advanced by the Commissioner of 
Public Works for the adoption of this resolution are 
in my opinion entirely sound, and I would respect- 
fully urge its immediate consideration and passage. 

Yours very truly,

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City of Chicago is so laid out that 
the Chicago River separates its great commercial 
center from its industrial and the residential dis- 



tricts, and the Calumet River separates important in- 
dustrial districts; and 

Whereas, The rapid growth of the City of Chi- 
cago in population and in commercial and social 
activities has filled its streets with a great and con- 
tinuous traffic which must move across the bridges 
over the aforementioned rivers; and 

Whereas, The problem of providing relief from 
traffic congestion has become one of great import- 
ance and becomes more serious and more pressing 
day by day; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago is spending large 
amounts of money in constructing, maintaining, and 
operating movable bridges across said rivers; and 

Whereas, The commerce carried in masted ves- 
sels upon the rivers is of value and importance to 
the Port of Chicago; and 

Whereas, The opening of the bridges from time 
to time to permit the passage of these masted ves- 
sels causes inconvenience, delay, and loss to the 
citizens of Chicago who must pass to. and fro across 
the bridges in their daily purusits; and 

Whereas, There is an insistent demand from those 
who travel over the bridges that fixed bridges be sub- 
stituted for the movable bridges now in use; and 

Whereas, There is a natural desire on the part of 
those using the river that water transportation fa- 
cilities shall remain as they are or be increased; 
and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago as a whole is direct- 
ly interested in the matter of bridge costs which are 
not the same for movable and for fixed bridges; and 

Whereas, There is a conflict of interests in this 
matter between the citizens using the streets and 
those using the. river; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chicago 
has directed that a full and complete inquiry be made 
into all of the conditions bearing on the problem of 
a bridge construction policy and this inquiry will 
consider, among other things, the value and char- 
acter of the present and prospective commerce upon 
the said Chicago River and Calumet River, the 
volume and importance of the traffic across the said 
rivers and the losses resulting from the interruption 
to that traffic through through the opening of the 
bridges, and the present and prospective costs of 
building, maintaining, and operating movable bridges 
as compared with the present and prospective costs 
of building and maintaining fixed bridges; and 

Whereas, This survey so directed is now being 
made with all possible speed and thoroughness and 
a report thereof will be returned to the City of 
Chicago as soon as may be; and 

Whereas, The Chicago River and the Calumet 
River are navigable waters of the United States and 
the lawful consent of the Congress of the United 
States would be necessary to any change of policy 
affecting the control or regulation of the said rivers, 
if any change in the present policy should be sug- 
gested; now therefore be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago. That the Congress of the United States be 
and the same is. hereby respectfully requested and 
urged to direct the Secretary of War and the Chief 
of Engineers of the War Department of the United 
States or such other agent or agents as the said 
Congress may select, as soon as may be, to make a 
survey of the commerce upon said Chicago River and 
Calumet River and in the Port of Chicago, and of 



December 12, 1923.

limits of the Citv of Chicago, and upon the readjust-

to add to, modify or change any of the amount* 
set forth as fees in Section 2 hereof at any time 
after the expiration of five (5) years from the 
date of the passage and approval hereof." 
In publishing the revised Code this section was 

omitted without the consent of any department or 
committee. The rates in the ordinance of 1918 were 
fixed very low with the understanding that at the 
end of five years they would be materially increased. 
For this reason I attach hereto an amendment to the 



Code to be numbered 3805-A which covers the same 
meaning as intended in the original ordinance.

Lake Shore Athletic Club: Projection of Piers 
for Building. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Local 
Industries, Streets and Alleys: 

Department of Public Works,) 
Chicago, December 5, 1923.} 

To the Honorable Mayor and Members of the City 
Council of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am respectfully transmitting, here- 
to attached, a letter from Jarvis Hunt, architect, ad- 
dressed to your Honorable Body, together with plans 
of the Lake Shore Athletic Club Building, to be lo- 
cated at Chestnut street and the Lake Shore Drive, 
in which permission is requested to extend certain 
footings of foundations into Chestnut street. 

The Department of Public Works has required the 
architect to alter the original design of these founda,- 
tions, in order to avoid interfering with two water 
tunnels traversing the property. In thus limiting 
the design, by requiring the use of shorter piles, it 
has been necessary for the footings to be spread out 
over a greater area, necessitating the projecting of 
certain footings, as shown on the plans, into Chest- 
nut street. 

As the ordinances governing the construction of 
buildings in Chicago do not permit the Commis- 
sioner of Buildings or the Commissioner of Public 
Works to rule in this matter, your Honorable Body 
is respectfully requested to grant by ordinance the 
right to extend the footings in question into Chest- 



nut street, in accordance with plans to be approved 
by the Commissioner of Public Works.

body, at the meeting held on December 12, 1923, 
and appearing on pages 1334 and 1335 of the 
Journal of Proceedings of said date, creating a 
Bureau of Track Elevation in the Department of 

Public Works. 

While this ordinance was passed upon my special 
instance and request, I am informed by the Com- 
missioner of Public Works that this action would 
entail an annual expenditure of $50,000.00, when in 
fact under a substitute ordinance herewith sub- 
mitted, it will be possible to accomplish the same 
results without added expense, and I therefore 
recommend that the vote by which the said ordi- 
nance was passed be reconsidered and that the ordi- 
nance be placed on file. 

I attach hereto an ordinance amending Section 
3235 of Article V of Chapter LXV of The Chicago 
Municipal Code of 1922, prepared in accordance 
with the suggestion of the Commissioner of Public 
Works, and recommend its passage by your honor- 
able body. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor.

Veto. 



In the Matter of the Removal of Garbage and Rubbish 
from South AVater St. 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago, December 27, 1923. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without my ap- 
proval, an order passed by your honorable body, at 
the meeting held on December 12, 1923, and appear- 
ing on pages 1407 and 1408 of the Journal of Pro- 
ceedings of said date, directing that the owners of 
property on South Water street be required to re- 
move garbage and rubbish from their respective 
premises on and after January 1, 1924. 

My approval of this order is withheld on the 
recommendation of the Commissioner of Public 
Works for the reason that the peremptory discon- 
tinuance of the practice of cleaning South Water 
street of its daily refuse without first ascertaining 
whether the owners of property will rid the streets 
of its garbage and rubbish, may result in serious 
affectation of the health of persons engaged in the 
produce trade as well as others employed close by. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which 
the said order was passed be reconsidered and that 
the order be placed on file. 



I submit herewith a resolution on the subject 
matter and recommend its passage by your honor- 
able body. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Woodhull moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed order was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Woodhull moved that said vetoed order be 
placed on file. 

The motion prevailed. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
the resolution submitted with said veto message, with- 
out reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Kostner moved to adopt said resolution. 
The motion prevailed. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City of Chicago expended $26,- 
969.25 in the year 1922, and, according to estimates, 
will expend $29,218.50 in 1923, for the removal of 
garbage and rubbish and the cleaning of South 
Water street, exclusive of the removal of snow; and 

Whereas, There is no other street in the City of 
similar area, that requires the expenditure of such 
a large sum to keep il in a clean and sanitary- con- 
dition; and 

Whereas, The conditions necessitating such extra- 
ordinary service are the result of the special and 
particular uses made of the street by the merchants 
doing business there, and it is manifestly unfair 
that the taxpayers should pay the entire cost of 
this unusual service: therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the owners and occupants of 
property on South Water street be requested to 
meet immediately with the Committee on Finance 
to the end that a plan may be adopted whereby the 
City will continue with its street cleaning work as 
heretofore and the reimbursement of the cost 
thereof be pro-rated among the South Water street 
property owners and occupants benefited by this 
service.

way of tbe Dunning Branch of the Chicago, Mil- 
waukee and St. Paul Railway; the alley next north 
of and most nearly parallel to George street and 
Natoma avenue, to those of a Manufacturing Dis- 
trict". 

My approval of this amendatory ordinance is 
withheld for the reason that Alderman Frank J. 
Tomczak lias reported numerous protests to the

siding in the immediate neighborhood who were 
uninformed of the action taken by the Council 
until too late, and this information is confirmed by

Corporation Counsel, and desire to make it a part 
of my veto message.

Dry-cleaning Plants: in the Matter of the Elimination 

of a Requirement for a 50-Foot Clearance 

on All Sides. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the memorandum trans- 
mitted therewith, referred to the Committee on Judi- 
ciary : 

Fire Department,] 
Chicago, December 12, 1923.) 

To the Honorable Mayor and City Council: 
Gentlemen — In order to bring about a change in 

an intolerable and grossly unjust situation existing 
in the dry-cleaning industry, I wish to state the fol- 
lowing facts : 

On June 25, 1917, Council Proceedings, page 789, 
of that date, appears an Amendment to the original 
Dry Cleaners' Ordinance. In this ordinance is the 
provision .that 50 feet of open space shall be re- 
quired around every dry cleaning plant. 

In order to realize how drastic (yes it has even 
proved prohibitive) this 50 feet clearance is; let 
me cite a case: 

If one wishes to erect a 25 foot dry cleaning plant 
it is necessary to acquire 125 feet of property in 
order to have 50 feet of open space on all sides of 
the 25 foot building. 

While it is true in part that the business of dry 
cleaning, using as they do large quantities of 
naptha, benzine and gasoline, is dangerous; yet it 
is hardly so hazardous as to require 50 feet of open 
space around the plant. 

This fact will be perhaps further appreciated, 
when it is known that the 50 foot clearance was the 
distance set by the establishments in existence at 
the time of passage of the ordinance. — none, abso- 
lutely not one, of which has the 50 foot clearance. 
In most cases, no clearance at all. 

Then, too, since the passage of this ordinance in 
1917, only one establishment has been erected in 
the City. 

However, many of the existing establishments, 
due to a tremendous increase in business, have 
sought to expand and add stories to existing build- 
ings, none of which has the 50 feet of open space. 

This office so interpreted the 50 foot provision as 
to require old plants, as well as new plants, when 
the old plants desired to build new buildings, to 



enlarge old buildings and add stories to existing 
buildings, so as to provide 50 feet of open space. 

In some six or eight instances of enlarging and 
adding to plants an injunction was issued in an ex 
parte hearing, in which the City did not even ap- 
pear in court. These injunctions restrained the 
City in toto, and were all obtained before the pres- 
ent administration took office. 

Under the present administration, in two cases, 
where dry cleaning plants attempted to erect new 
buildings or increase the size of existing plants, the 
Bureau stopped the new work. Injunctions were 
sought, the City had lawyers in court and both 
cases were thrown out because the court stated, as 
a matter of law. it was not a case for an injunction. 
but for a mandamus proceeding. 

These events are cited to bring out the exact sit- 
uation. 

In many instances where injunctions are at pres- 
ent in force, the erection of an additional building 
on premises already badly congested, presents not 
only a serious fire hazard, but even a dangerous 
life hazard, as the room in which the benzine and 
naptha is handled has been placed under a tenement 
house, and in one case, that at 4410 South State 
street, an explosion in November, 1922, injured 
many people and it was only extreme good for- 
tune that many were not killed. This place enjoys 
the legal protection of one of the now famous ex 
parte injunctions. 

This Bureau has attempted to have the 50 foot 
clearance portion of the ordinance amended, but 
has never been successful. This 50 foot clearance 
requirement is not necessary for either fire or 
safety. 

With these thoughts foremost in mind, we are 
attaching a draft of an ordinance which, if passed, 
we believe, will eliminate the undesirable restric- 
tions and yet safeguard life and property. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) John C. McDonnell, 

Chief, Bureau of Fire Prevention and Public

The Sanitary District of Chicago: Increase in the Rate 
for Electrical Energy for Street Lighting. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department of Gas and Electricity,] 
Chicago, December 26, 1923. J 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City Council 

Assembled: 

Gentlemen — The Department of Gas and Elec- 
tricity is in receipt of a communication from the 
Chief Engineer of The Sanitary District of Chi- 
cago announcing that commencing January 1, 1924, 
the rate at which The Sanitary District has been 
providing the City of Chicago energy for its street 
lighting system will be increased from $.0044 per 
kilowatt hour to $.0085 per kilowatt hour. 

The contract under which the old rate of $.0044 
per kilowatt hour applied was entered into by the 
City of Chicago and The Sanitary District in 1918 
for a period of five (5) years expiring December 31,

v 1922. No contract for energy has been entered into for 
1923. This owing to the fact that The Sanitary Dis- 
trict contemplated some radical changes in the dis- 
tribution of their energy and were not prepared to 
execute any contracts. However, they permitted the 
City to continue its service, billing us for the same 
under the old rate of $.0044 per kilowatt hour. 

In explanation of their rate increase, it develops 
that the load conditions of The Sanitary District 
electrical system have been such that it became im- 
perative that they dispose of a greater portion of 
their commercial load which resulted in cutting 
their revenue approximately $400,000.00 per year. 
This means that in order for their Electrical De- 
partment to be self-sustaining that the rates of 
those consumers they are serving must be increased 
to offset the deficit they have suffered in disposing 
of their commercial load. In round figures this 
change in rate means that the City must pay, under 
the new rate on the basis of a 50.000,000 kilowatt 
hour yearly consumption, $425,000.00 for street 
lighting energy. The same quantity of energy un- 
der the old contract would cost $220,000.00. 

This Department has checked The Sanitary Dis- 
trict proposed rate against the Edison Company rate 
for the same class of service and on the basis of 
the same kilowatt hour consumption, the Edison 
Company rate figures $.00864 per kilowatt hour. 
At this price it would cost us approximately 
$8,000.00 more a year using Edison service. How- 
ever, in order to obtain Edison service it would re- 
quire the expenditure of approximately $200,000.00 
to make the necessary changes in our transmission 
cable and substation equipment to be able to tie-in 
to their system. 

The Department is anxious to have this matter 
disposed of and is awaiting the pleasure of your 
Honorable Body. 

Respectfully submitted,

Report of Action Taken in the Matter of the Abatement 
of the 'Pittsburgh Plus" Practice. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Department of Law,) 
Chicago, December 27. 1923. j" 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In pursuance of instructions con- 
tained in the resolutions passed by your honorable 
body on November 28, 1923 (Council Journal, p. 
1290), the writer was designated as the representa- 
tive of the City of Chicago to appear in Washing- 
ton before the Federal Trade Commission at the 
hearing on Pittsburgh Plus which is now in prog- 
ress. Such appearance was made on December 13, 
1923, and the writer remained in Washington there- 
after until the conclusion of the taking of testi- 
mony on December 15, 1923. 

The expression "Pittsburgh Plus" is used to des- 
ignate a practice that has been followed for a long 
time whereby steel mills located at other places 
than the Pittsburgh district add on the price of the 



freight from Pittsburgh to their plants on all rolled 
steel products sold by them at their plants. The 
purchaser thereby is compelled to pay the freight 
from Pittsburgh even though no freight charge was 
incurred. 

The case before the Federal Trade Commission 
has been pending a long time. It was first instituted 
by the filing of an application for a complant on Au- 
gust 1, 1919, -which was denied on July 24, 1920. 
Subsequently, on August 1, 1920, a second applica- 
tion was made, or more properly speaking, an ap- 
plication for a re-hearing. This re-hearing was 
granted, the matter was re-argued, and finally, on 
April 30, 1921, the complaint was issued. This 
may be regarded as the beginning of the case. It 
has progressed so far that all the testimony has 
been heard, and the Commission is ready for the 
arguments. When these are completed the Com- 
mission will decide the matter. From this decision 
there may be an appeal .to the courts.

discrimination un-

comes within the 



The nature of the complaint 
States Steel Corporal ion and its 
nies are following a practice wh 
stitute unfair competition under 
Commission Act, and an unlawful 
der the Clayton Act. The legal 
is whether or not the practice 
prohibitions fixed in these acts. 

In the present state of the record there is little 
that either the Law Department or the City Coun- 
cil can do with respect to the legal questions in- 
volved. The resolutions adopted by the Council 
were offered and introduced in evidence as one of 
the things tending to show the public interest in 
the matter. Their introduction provoked the most 
violent opposition, one of the attorneys becoming 
downright abusive in voicing his objections. 

The legal aspect of the case has, however, to 
some extent given way to a pretense that has been 
raised to the effect that the practice is in some way 
founded on economic law. If such were the case 
neither legislation nor lawsuits could affect it. But 
to the writer the raising of such a defense ap- 
pears like the veriest sham. 

The taking of 19,000 pages of testimony and the 
introduction of 7,000 exhibits may have been nec- 
essary to a proper understanding and adjudication 
of the matter, but there is at least ground for sus- 
picion that the hearing has been unnecessarily pro- 
longed. Even now there is little prospect of a final 
determination by the courts inside of two years, 
and in the meanwhile the collection of these imag- 
inary freight rates that have not been earned goes 
on to the extent of anywhere from $100,000.00 to 
$200,000.00 per day. 

It has been intimated to the writer that it would 
be unfair in him to say in this report that an in- 
terminable defense is being staged for a purpose, 
but the fact remains that many millions of people 
are daily allowing themselves to be mulcted by a 
practice that is indefensible from any standpoint 
while a case that is to determine whether a partic- 
ular corporation has been guilty of an infraction 
of a certain statute is dragging its slow length along. 

It would probably require the most drastic action 
of a kind that we would not recommend without 
much careful study and consideration in order to 
accomplish anything further than your honorable 
body has done It. almost seems as though it can 
do nothing besides voicing its protest as it did in 
the resolution referred to.

DEPARTMENT OF POLICE. 



In the Matter of the Construction of a Building to House 

a Central Police Station and the Quasi-criminal 

Branches of the Municipal Court. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Office of the Superintendent of Police, 
Chicago, December 12, 1923. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and Aldermen of the 
City of Chicago, in City Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — The Police Department has long felt 
the need of a suitable central station to meet the re- 
quirements of its Headquarters Detail, of District 1, 
located at 180 North La Salle street, District 1-A, 
located at 625 South Clark street, of the Detective 
Headquarters located at 179 North La Salle street, 
and of the Traffic Division, located at Illinois and 
North LaSalle streets, and also to house the following 
activities now located in different police stations: 
Bureau of Identification. Bureau of Records, Drill- 
master and his aids, Vehicle Bureau, Lost and Stolen 
Automobile Bureau, Custodian of Lost and Stolen 
Property, Bureau of Telegraph and the Bureau of 
Printing. 

To provide for these quarters and for the criminal 
and quasi-criminal branches of the Municipal Court, 
I have had preliminary plans and estimates pre- 
pared for the construction of a suitable building to 
be located at State and Eleventh streets. This build- 
ing is to be fourteen stories high and to be designed 
so that the same may be built to the maximum 
height permitted under the present ordinance. 

There remains in the bond fund authorized for 
the construction of police stations approximately 
$500,000. This money may be expended only after 
the further authorization of the City Council. 

It is my recommendation that a plan for financing 
this new building be worked out, which will in a 
general way provide for the payment of the $500,000 
as a part of the construction expense, and the 
amortization of the balance of this expense over a 
period of years. 

Respectfully submitted, 



(Signed)

the crime breeding atmosphere and corrupting in- 
lluence of association with hardened criminals in 
police station cells: and 

Whereas. The effect of such association and in- 
fluence must inevitably tend to weaken the moral 
sanctions of youth and make it easier to fall into 
the ways of criminals; and

Award of Contract for the Official Newspaper for the

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Department of Finance,^ 
i- Chicago, January 2, 1924. j 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and Aldermen, in City 
Council Assembled: 

Dear Sirs — Please be advised that in accordance 
with Sections 2835 to 2844, both inclusive, of Chap- 
ter LY, of the Chicago Code of 1922, the Board of 
Award, consisting of the Mayor, Comptroller and 
Chairman of the Finance Committee, opened bids at 
12:30 P. M. on December 26, 1923, for the adver- 
tisement of those matters and things required by law 
or any ordinance of the City to be published in a 



newspaper for the year 1924 (copy of advertisement 
enclosed). The following were the bids: 

The Chicago Evening Post, $.0285 per line per 
insertion, set solid agate measure, 14 lines to the 

inch. 

The Calumet Publishing Company, $.0263 per 
agate line, 14 lines to the inch; set in nonpareil 
type 12 lines to the inch, at the rate of $.024 per 
line. 

We would respectfully recommend the acceptance 
of the bid of the "Chicago Evening Post," because of 
the relative circulations of the bidders and the char- 
acter of the circulation, the "Daily Calumet" being 
practically limited to South Chicago and the "Chi- 
cago Evening Post" being a paper of general circu- 
lation throughout Chicago. 

While the bid of the "Chicago Evening Post" is 
slightly higher than the bid of the "Calumet Pub- 
lishing Co." our recommendation is based upon the 
difference in the size and character of the circula- 
tion. 

Respectfully, 

(Signed) Martin J. O'Brien, 

Comptroller. 

Alderman Woodhull thereupon presented an order 
authorizing an award of the contract for the official 
newspaper for the year 1924 to the Chicago Evening

The City Clerk presented the following report, which 
was, together with the memorandum transmitted there- 
with, referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Mayor's Safety Commission,) 
Chicago, January 2. 1924. { 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and City Council, Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — Several months ago your Honor ap- 
pointed this Commission and the City Council con- 
curred in the appointments. 

We were instructed to study the chief causes to 
which accidents were attributable and to recommend 
a program of education as well as such official action 
as would tend to lessen the hazard. 

In our report to Honarble. Mayor Dover of Novem- 
ber 1, 1923, copy of which is attached- hereto, we 
pointed out that as a result of our investigations we 
found that the principal causes of accidents were 
due to carelessness on the part of both motorists 
and pedestrians, speeding, inefficient lighting and 
marking "through" streets, failure of motorists to 
stop at boulevards when entering same; the driving 
of automobiles by intoxicated persons, playing of 
children in the streets and hitching on vehicles by 
children, faulty brakes on motor vehicles, glaring 
headlights, etc., and while exact statistics as to the 
percentage of accidents caused by the above are not 
at hand, police records show them to be the main 
reasons. The Commission has held 31 meetings, an 
average of practically one meeting per week, since 
its appointment and each one being well attended. 
Our investigations have shown that the majority of 
accidents could be prevented by proper educational 
measures, as thoughtlessness and ignorance are 
largely responsible for a great many accidents. 

The fund of $5,000.00 which was allowed did not 
enable us to obtain exact statistics on the above 
causes, but generally speaking they are correct. We 
also compiled and gave to all newspapers, radio- 
broadcasting stations, moving picture theatres and 
police stations a list of daily lessons and slogans for 
safety, which we felt were the mediums through 
which the largest number of people could be reached. 
A letter containing safety slogans and asking their 
co-operation in the interest of safety was mailed to 
the principal of every public and parochial school, 
high school, college and university in the City of 
Chicago, asking them to instruct the teachers under 
their jurisdiction to teach safety to all their pupils. 
We are receiving reports almost daily from school 
principals stating that they approve of this plan for 
safety and assure us of their co-operation. 

The number of persons killed in Chicago by au- 
tomobiles from January 1, 1922, to December 25. 
1922, was 601, from January 1, 1923. to December 
25, 1923, was 565, or a reduction of 36, or an ap- 
proximate 6 per cent reduction, and this in view 
of the fact that there are 53,598 more automobiles 
in Chicago in 1923 than in 1922 and that the popu- 
lation has increased in like proportion. 

It will no doubt be noticed the figures above do 
not correspond with those published elsewhere, but 
we have obtained our figures from the. statistics of 
the Police Department and know them to be correct. 
These figures include only the number of people 



January 2. 1924. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1507 



killed within the City of Chicago. Statistics for each 
previous year show an increase of 20 to 25 per cent 
over the previous one, therefore we feel that some 
progress has been made. 

Taking everything into consideration that we have 
been able to ascertain in the past few months, we 
heartily recommend to the City Council that a Bu- 
reau of Accident Prevention and Public Safety be 
created with an adequate appropriation toward 
maintenance, and we also offer our services to as- 
sist this bureau in an advisory capacity. We also 
feel that an appropriation of $100,000.00 will be 
necessary for the maintenance of an office force and 
for educational safety propaganda and recommend 
the following budget for consideration: 

Commissioner of Accident Prevention. . .$5,000.00 
Executive Secretary and Chief of Stall'. . . -4,000.00 

Traffic Engineer 4,000.00

partment heads, may be divided into two periods;

Ordered, That all employes in the skilled labor 
and labor service classes, who are employed on a per 
diem basis, shall be given by the respective depart- 
ment heads, a vacation of eleven (11) work days

such course; and be it further

effect and operation of this order, the executives 
of the Board of Education, Public Library, Municipal 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium, Law Department and all 
active members of the Department of Police and
